Storyline

Xander "XXX" Cage is a thrill seeker who until now has been deemed untouchable by the law. NSA Agent Gibbons forces XXX to cooperate with the government to infiltrate an underground Russian crime ring, and avoid going to prison. Gibbons sends XXX to enter this world of crime undetected where others have failed, using his natural athletic prowess and a whole lot of attitude. Xander must combat an organization led by a clever, ruthless and nihilistic Yorgi whose first target is the city of Prague. Written by Artemis-9

Just what was needed. A punk version of James Bond. The first 12 minutes or so was almost believable. It even had a little decent humor. The movie went downhill from there. The music wasn't to my taste, but I can understand that many younger people will like it. If it is possible for an action flick to be less believable than the Bond movies, this one was.
